Obama's trying too hard to fix this wreck of a planet, when it's already screwed up beyond fixing. What we NEED to do is initiate a planetwide evacuation before the polar ice melts, releasing the methane gas trapped beneath it and killing us all. Anyone who wants to stay and die, be my guest.

That's very bad news. Maybe another country with the resources can take on the project or another group of countries.

I see no reason to continue exploring space as long was we still use the same technology as in the 60s to shoot up our stuff.
But I cannot express how silly it is to reduce government expenditures right now, the crisis ain't over yet.
Obama should listen to Christine Romer and Paul Krugman, not to the Reps and the centrists in his own party. Perhaps Hillary will take over before he seriously messes up something.

The simple fact is that you can't afford everything all at once.

It seems to signal a reorientation of focus and priorities and that things have been in places more delayed that scrapped totally.

NASA can't have it's cake and eat it as well.

Besides, governments aren't going to get us into space. Corporations and private investors will.

Glad to see America now has a President who has noticed that the planet has global warming.
